Next week I will (if nothing goes wrong) publish pybsddb 4.6.4. This release supports distributed transactions and replication, testsuite is way faster, and rewritten to be able to launch tests from multiple threads/processes if you wish, setuptools/pypi support, etc.
I think this release would be appropiate to integrate in Python. I think most demands are solved and new features are interesting (replication, distributed transactions, do not crash when closing objects in the wrong order...). Also, I completed the documentation, with the full supported API, and ported it to Python 2.6 documentation system. The result:
I'm very interested in integrating this release in Python 2.6 for the new features, the full documentation, and to get feedback from Buildbot and python-dev community. Also, I would like to avoid to integrate pybsddb late in the python 2.6 release cycle; I hope to be away of my computer in August! :).
I'm a bit nervous about syncing, because I have the feeling that python-dev is committing changes to python private branch of pybsddb. I would rather prefer patches send to me and integrate "canonical" pybsddb releases in Python frequently.
Somebody suggested to post patches in the tracker, but I think this is not going to work. The diff from current python bsddb and the official version is so huge that nobody could follow it. A more sensible approach, I think, is to "diff" current python pybsddb against the version I used as my root (January?), integrate the changes in current "canonical" pybsddb and, then, drop the entire updated package into python.
Then, commits to python pybsddb should be avoided; patches should be send to me.
I think this is the only way when integrating a project outside python SVN. Suggestions?.
PS: I can't comment on Win64. It is an alien world to me :).
